It‘s really nice. It‘s the entry point to old town. There was a good souvenir shop, where I bought myself a „Bratislava“ - shirt.

This is a really nice gate - useful as a marker for people like me who get lost easily. Walk through it and you’re in the old town

If you’re looking for somewhere to start your tour of the old town then Michael’s gate is a lovely start. It’s a nice landmark and interesting to see.

Google maps leads you to the base but we couldn’t find an entrance to find the view spot. The area is pretty and enjoyable

This is a nice old tower in the centre of Bratislava Old Town. At its base there are some nice bars and a plinth that tells you the distance to other capital cities.

Great photo opportunity here from the top but don't ignore everything on the climb, this is also a museum so pay attention as you reach every level on your climb.

You certainly need to go check it out but there's not much too look at or do. It mostly just adds to the beauty of the area.

It is a beautiful structure and walking around is very charming. It is a landmark for Bratislava and its history is impressive.

The gate is huge but there's nothing incredible about it. It is a totally must see but not out of the ordinary.

Not a lot to see but it marks the start of the Old Town. From here you can explore the streets and the little bars.
